Quiet Confidence

comes from being on the right path.

It’s the path that is in harmony with your values.
It’s the path on which you do what you should do.
It’s the path of your conscience.

When you walk down that path you are happy.

Happy, because you make the right decisions.
Happy, because you make progress on what matters.
Happy, because what you do is good.

Doing what is good leads to confidence.

Confident that you are living your life – not that of others.
Confident that what you do matters – because it does.
Confident that you can do it one more time – because you already did.

In the words of Marcus Aurelius:

“Just that you do the right thing.
The rest doesn’t matter.”

Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
